Actress Keira Knightley, whom you might remember from Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean,” seems to have a problem with Disney princesses:

There’s something kind of ironic about a chick who got a big career boost from Disney trashing Disney princesses.
Everything else aside it has to be great for Disney to shell out millions to a star for a film franchise just to have them turn around and call you sexist. https://t.co/bMtYDt2zXj

But even ignoring that angle, can we just talk about how lame Knightley’s effort to empower her daughter is? Mary Katharine Ham, for one, isn’t buying what Knightey’s selling. And as the mother of two daughters, Ham knows what she’s talking about:
Ironically, if I tried to do this at my house (and I have my moments), you would bear witness to the outer limits of female empowerment and fierce agency in the battle my daughters would wage against me. https://t.co/1kfw8Eb4N4

Ha! But seriously, though. You don’t mess with a girl’s Disney princess.
Funny enough, my 14 year old (not that she would admit it) would bring down the house if I tried something like that!

I have 2 daughters. I’m not sure you’d come out the other side.

If I tried this there would be a revolt in my house. My 8 and 5 year old girls would kick me to the street.

I have six daughters. It isn’t happening in my home.
